Our Mission

CMFW passionately believes in the life-enhancing power of classical music — that its timeless beauty can brighten the darkest lives; its symmetry can bring order to chaos; its delicate ability to touch the soul can restore one’s faith; and its universal appeal to the senses can unite people of disparate cultures. We commit ourselves to performing and sharing classical music for people of the world who long for beauty and inspiration in their lives.
